Court ruling guts state public record law, lawyer says

Fairbanks Daily News Miner – “If the state does not preserve a document, then it isn’t a public document, a recent court ruling suggests, which could give public employees the power to keep anything private by failing to preserve it. Veteran Alaska attorney Don Mitchell has appealed the ruling, saying that it “guts” the law requiring that government records be made public.”
